India has started rolling out a programme to vaccinate at least 1.3 billion people against COVID virus, the biggest vacant programme the world ever experienced. Sri Lanka and Bamgalidash officially requested to acquire Covaxin from Bharat Biotech. Still, the company ruled out to give possible supply date outside India due to limitation of supply against demand.
